Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

No one likes being disciplined. No child wakes up wanting to get a spanking, nor does a teenager want cellphone privileges taken away. No young adult wants to get fired, and the veteran at work doesn't desire to get yelled at for making the same mistakes over and over again. In short, no one...

A Risky Faith

0

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

C.S. Lewis once mused about Christianity saying, "I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” This is a very popular quote from...
